    The 38HOURS city travel guides avoid typographic stereotypes, or at least they happily shuffle them around: the Berlin edition comes in a quintessential French typeface, Antique Olive (Bold Condensed, with a lowercase ‘i’ thrown in for fun). Amsterdam is presented in the very English Windsor (albeit against Dutch orange). Paris is set in outlined Clarendon, another epitome of British type design (revived in Switzerland). Only the newest edition is a match in terms of local color: London proudly features Gill Sans 442 Ultra Bold, better known as Gill Kayo, made in the UK in 1936.
